I am considering buying my son-in-law a new guitar for Christmas. I had pretty much settled on a Squier Classic Vibe 50's Strat. I've owned a couple of CV's and know they are excellent. Talking with one of my friends he said to give serious consideration to the G&L Legacy Tribute special edition. I see that they are the same price $399 at Sweetwater. None of our local stores stock G&L. Not having played one I am seeking opinions on how they compare to the Classic Vibe. Sweetwater offers an Olympic White and Black with maple board G&L at $399 which is the same price as the Squier. Thanks for your input.
